Blown away

by Luca Catalano Gonzaga

The development of wind power in India began in the 1990s, and has significantly increased in the last few years. India has the fifth largest installed wind power capacity in the world. 
Indian companies are exporting wind turbines and turbine blades to Europe, the US, Australia, China and Brazil.
 Some of the foreign companies with subsidiaries in India are sourcing more than 80 per cent of their components from Indian manufacturers.Suzlon is a leader in the Indian wind energy stage.This wind farm is located at Dhule in Maharashtra, 200 miles away from Mumbai, and it is the biggest wind farm in Asia.
It has an area of 50 km2 with 650 rotor blades. Each rotor blade produces 1.25 MW of electricity per hour, enough to supply 400 houses. Suzlon’s rotor blade manufacture facility produces each day 7 rotor blades that are exported to Asia.This farm produces sufficient clean electricity to eliminate the production of approximately 70,000 tons of carbon dioxide each year.Wind power consumes no fuel and emits no air pollution, unlike fossil fuel power sources.
